Watching the Food Network is a terrible thing. Terrible, I tell you!
Especially the baking shows. Awful.
It makes me want to bake awfully delicious, ooey-gooey sugary things.
So when Ellie’s half birthday came around I knew it was the perfect excuse to bake a cake!
Well, half a cake.
A lopsided one at that.
Although the lopsided-ness wasn’t on purpose.
Anyway, I whipped up one delicious
incredibly amazing homemade cake from a box.
(I did make some homemade frosting however. Those judges on cupcake wars would’ve been proud.)
And I put my ziplock bags to use and whipped up a few numbers to go on top.
Yes, ziplock bags. No fancy-smancy decorating stuff around here. (One day, one day)
Twenty minutes after I took a few photos, the cake broke in half. Both ways.
It was devoured by morning.
Yes, we eat cake for breakfast around here.
Happy half birthday Elles!
Thanks for giving us a great excuse to celebrate.
And make cake.
Sorry you didn’t get any.
Hope that graham cracker was just as good. ;)
